We went there on a Saturday morning. Restaurants and bars were full by sunny weather. Came to us as a respite from the crowds in the old town. The street is nice with good restaurants and bars. Worth to come for few hrs. I can reccomend Cafe Cadde for espresso, cake and food also.

It's a very long street on the Asian side of Istanbul. Full of high fashion stores, good quality restaurants and cafes. You can see very fashionable people walking around, shopping and dining. Worth going.

This 6 km avenue lies along from Kiziltoprak to Bostanci district and is definitely the top attraction located the Anatolian (Asian) side of Istanbul. With its wide pavements, strolling along the avenue and feeling the most modern side of Turkey is a priceless experience. Shops and caffes are mainly concentrated in the Saskinbakkal-Suadiye part so it is advised to start... More

"Better shopping than NY" that was my wife´s verdict of this place. A long boulevard lined with shops (Turkish and international brands) and restaurants. Spend a long afternoon here, and will surely come back next time we visit Istanbul.
